SUNDAY | STAGE 1
Of all the stars in Folk Music’s wondrous firmament, few shine as brightly as Yorkshire’s Kate Rusby. A career which spans over 25 years in music showcases Kate as one of the finest interpreters of traditional folk songs and one of our most emotive original songwriters. Forever proud to call herself a folk singer, Kate’s beautiful, expressive vocals never fail to connect the emotional heart of a song to that of her audience.
Kate brings her band to the Festival and we are pleased to welcome Damien O’Kane, Nick Cooke, Duncan Lyall and Stevie Byrnes.
Alongside these incredible artists Kate also welcomes several of her friends, they are: Eddi Reader, Michael McGoldrick, Ron Block, Lori Watson, Josh Clark and The Donald Grant Quartet.
